I’m debating getting a NL Pure 10x or 12x but I’d like to use whichever one I get for astronomy (some of the brighter Messier objects, etc.) as well as terrestrially. Could anyone talk to how the 12x has performed for astronomy?
I’m aware the exit pupil is lower on the 12x (impacting light-gathering ability) but I’ve also seen comments that the 12x is “pushing the optics” of the series and I’m not sure what that means. Any insights would be very appreciated, especially from those who have tried out both magnifications in daylight and under the night skies.
Thanks in advance,
